Not a deer scrape. When you see an actual scrape, you’ll know. Typically only see them prior to and during the rut. And it won’t have “a track” in it, it will be stomped and scraped by their hooves. It’s called a scrape because they make it by scraping their hooves across the ground and will scratch the dirt away.
Could be turkey scratchings, if it’s public land it could be a mineral lick or a fake scrape someone has put out… but it doesn’t look like a deer scrape to me.
